St. Jude Defibrillators and Pacemakers
In recent years, many medical companies have made certain changes to the way the medical equipment is distributed. Hospitals all across the company seek to avoid any recalls on the medical equipment they use, and you can be protected even if you have been the victim of a recalled pacemaker or defibrillator.
St. Jude recently had these items recalled, and the company is currently working to make sure that there are no defects in the equipment, but you'll still want to contact a lawyer if you have experience faulty pacemakers or defibrillators, although you may not know which attorneys or law firms to contact in order to handle your case. The recall has been issued due to defects in the wiring for the defibrillator and pacemaker, and since this error has been detected, many patients are attempting to monitor their health after using the devices; this defect could possibly cause complications in the future, which is why you need to get in touch with a lawyer as soon as possible.
